Hi I have a question about rear hub lacing. I am planning on building a new set of wheels and previously i have used the bikehubstore hubs and they are great but i was wondering is it possible/sensible to lace a 24 hole ear hub 1x all around so that all the drive side spokes are heads in and all the none drive side are heads out. Stiffness wise there wouldn;t be any benefit but it would allow the ds/nds tensions to be closer as the hubs is towards the low end with a 45% tension differential.
I don't know is this a bad idea? It would allow the tensions to be closer together but do they really need to be? All my previous builds with these hubs have been laced conventionally and i haven't had any problems but if can be done without any other issues created it seems like it would be worth it. The only issue i can see is that with 1x lacing the spokes aren't as optimally positioned for "pulling" correct?
